Wedding Etiquette For Georgia Weddings Here are some wedding etiquette tips to help you on your journey to starting a new chapter in your life.

Get ready for this question on the big day We want to prepare you because it’s coming on your wedding day: the most asked question on a wedding day.  Are you ready for it?  When are you having kids?  Everyone is going to ask. They just are.  Even if you’ve told them already that you’re just going to chill for a while and enjoy married life (smart!!), they’re still going to ask when you’re having kids.  Not only are they going to be nosey and ask when you’re planning on having kids, but they’ll probably want to know how many kids you’re thinking about having.  It’s just how it goes. A natural rite of passage.  They’re thinking, “Whwew! They’re finally married now, on to the next thing: kids!”  How To Prepare For Your Wedding And right now, you’re thinking, “Oh, I’m sure someone will ask.”  No. Nope. (Almost) everyone will [...]

The secret to planning a perfect Georgia wedding We’ve seen a lot of weddings come through our venues. And each one is a little different. Different wedding styles. Different family styles. Different timelines. And photographers. And party styes. Every wedding has its own awesomesauce.  But the best weddings.  The best weddings have something special. It seems like everyone is peacefully chilling, maybe dancing or playing cornhole or sitting around a dinner table laughing about old memories. The speeches bring both a smile and a tear to the eyes.
